Biographies of disease
Jones (Oregon Health and Science University) and Hoffman (clinical exercise specialist) define fibromyalgia as a syndrome and explain its pathophysiology, the clinician's role, the assembly of an ideal treatment team, various treatments, and other common disorders found in patients. Intended for both medical professionals and patients, the appendices list drugs often used in treating fibromyalgia with symptoms, provide a fibromyalgia clinical questionnaire, and illustrate exercises for loosening and strengthening muscles.
